Winning the Losing Battle:
A True Story of Weight Loss and Transformation
Growing up, I struggled with food choices.
I told myself that I overate because I loved food, but in reality I often felt awful about what I was eating, either guilty when eating “bad” foods or deprived when eating “good” foods.
The result was that I ended up eating much more than I needed and gained a lot of weight.
Finally, in August 2000, tragedy inspired me to change things. I decided that I was done listening to what other people told me about food – I was going to listen to myself. I started paying attention to my body’s needs and reactions, learning to trust its own wisdom.
"Just got this book and read it in one day, couldn't put it down once I started. She definitely describes authentically the experience of being overweight, especially as a teeenager/young woman. You go on her journey with her, and a journey many of us know firsthand. Thank you, Erica." - KT(Amazon review)
